Philips end-to-end oncology solutions driving a clear path to precision cancer care
According to the National Cancer Institute, patients today usually receive the same treatment as others who have same type and stage of cancer, despite growing evidence that they may respond differently. Philips’ approach to precision medicine is to arm care teams with expert clinical guidance and a holistic view of the patient’s genotypic (the set of genes in the DNA) and phenotypic (observable characteristics influenced by environmental and lifestyle factors) information in order to make decisions efficiently, collaboratively and accurately. Recognizing the growing need for technological advancement in oncology care – from early detection to diagnosis to treatment to survivorship – Philips connects areas such as pathology, genomics, molecular/multi-disciplinary tumor boards, therapy decision making, molecular and imaging phenotyping, so clinicians can have easy access to the insights they need to provide high-quality personalized care.
With Philips Genomics Workspace, oncologists can map a patient’s unique characteristics to a therapy that is best suited for them and provide evidence on why that therapy is preferable. Philips genomics solution combines individual institution genomic knowledge bases and general industry knowledge bases, to help molecular pathologists interpret genomic data and to provide clinicians with ways to enable improved patient care.
